What is patent?

A patent is an exclusive right granted to the creator of an invention. Broadly put, in order to acquire such protection, an invention must be technical or functional by nature; it must be novel; it must contain an 'inventive step' and it must have an industrial use.

A patent will confer on the owner the right to prevent third parties using the invention without prior consent. Once a patent registration is filed, it will be available to be viewed on the register. If a third party wishes to make use of the patented invention, it must enter into a commercial agreement with the proprietor of the patent.
